Some of the stuff they were doing wasn't even legal

I've often heard that said, to suggest that sex is hot, and raunchy, and never really thought about it. Thing is, we live in a reasonably liberal society (and by we, I mean people in a reasonably liberal society here). We can have sex in a variety of ways, and generally we won't be stopped. So what exactly IS illegal, and related to sex.


I dunno about you guys, but none of those sound like a party of erotic fun to me- I prefer to keep all 5 of the things relating to the list out of the bedroom, and I rather hope most of you feel the same way.

In conclusion, if anyone says this to you... give them a very odd look.

Well, I guess it depends on the context. The legal context, of course. Especially in some (Southern) American states where some acts between consenting adults are actually illegal...

Keep it out of the bedroom. Keep it in the barnyard. Or the elementary school.

I know that's not what you meant.

Marc: there are a lot of things that you can't legally consent to. You can't legally consent to have someone burn down your house. You can't consent to a barroom brawl. In some states you can't consent to sex when you're 17 (so why 18?). And you can't consent to be murdered either. It's a question of line drawing, for which legislatures (or perhaps the general populace) are better equipped than courts.

I know there are many things you can't legally consent to. Like the examples you give, or just plainly waving constitutional rights. My point was that the "stuff" alluded to depends on where the line is drawn by the legislature (or, more often, by tradition). And sometimes this line is thighter than we think.

Ah, yes. I think we are in agreement there. How odd.
